A pair of robotic dinosaurs, a Tyrannosaurus rex (left) and an Allosaurus (right), form part of a display at the Dallas Science Museum. The dinosaurs are made by the California-based company Dinamation International and are sent out in travelling displays to museums around the world. Each dinosaur is composed of a robotic skeleton covered by rigid fibre-glass plates, over which is laid a flexible skin of urethane foam. The creatures' joints are operated by compressed air and the movements are controlled by computer.
